    Question on the glass top

    I have a customer in my store right now bitching up a storm that we ruined his C5 glass roof by not wiping off excess wax when we detailed it. Is this possible? It was over a year ago and he kept it under a car cover all winter.

    If it was over a year ago, I'd say he did something to it. There is no way to guarantee that it was caused from your services since he had it in his possession for over a year and just now comes forward and tries to blame someone.

    He should have inspected it when you finished the job and then brought it back for a refund, adjustment etc.

    The guy might have done something to it himself. Don't honor crap on that one.

    I've waxed my glass t-tops before without any problems.

    I pretty much figured that, I just wanted more opinions on it. It definitely looks like something... perhaps fiberglass... melted on there. It's only on the passenger side on the very edge at about a 5 inch strip from front to back. I just assumed there was something on his car cover that caused that.

    lol 14 months later he tries that shit. Very rude person too.

    I'd tell him to show how wax could have done something like that or else go away seeing it was so long ago.

    Now that I'm thinking of it I'd say it has something to do with a cat. They can really screw up a car.

    Hence the reason they become targets for sighting in my scope...

    The funny part is, I talked to my washrack manager... no on in their right minds would have waxed the roof top anyway. They only wax the paint since what we use is actually not wax, it's a polymer.

    Well, either way. The guy (customer) is smoking crack or something to have the balls and do what he did. What does he think his car is? New in the wrapper never been opened and think he's gonna take it back to Wal-Mart for a full refund?

    What a goober.

    Agreed... though I haven't heard anyone being called a goober since elementary school. lol

    It's all good, we politely told him never to return to our dealer. That only happens once in a blue moon!

    On glass you could scrape it off with a razor blade, windex it and be fine.

    Wax wouldn't permeate the glass at all so there wouldn't be any damage from that.
